The Death Penalty

Whether you're for it or against if you read this story and the whole series on this case from the Houston Chronicle on Ruben Cantu it's obvious we need to scrutinize how we administer the death penalty in Texas, Did Texas execute an innocent man? Maybe a moratorium like in Illinois, especially on any cases that where we could now use DNA to make sure one way or another. And don't forget the other part of this tragedy, Ruben Cantu Tragedy: The real killer is still out there.

Democracy in Action has a petition (url below) to Gov. Perry and the Texas Legislature asking for a moratorium on executions in Texas in light of the Cantu case and execution.

I'm categorically against the death penalty, but this case should be of disturbing concern to everyone despite their position on capital punishment -- No one should be all right with letting an innocent man die!
